Expert Chris Marshall reviewed the top eight drill presses on the market and picked his favorite as a replacement for several other shop tools. Grizzly Tools' G7943 is virtually identical to its ground mounted cousin, with a heavy cast iron base, a huge square table and lots of power.
The market asked for a wide jointer for small shops with professional power and Grizzly responded with the G0706 12" Jointer with a 60" table. Grizzly's G0691 cabinet saw is a solid middle of the road table saw with a nicely adjustable rip fence and a useful dust port feature for all the dust this saw throws. The Grizzly Tools T10010 Grinder offers the best value for wet grindstone sharpening, though it does often end without a perfectly square edge.


Tool expert BIll Hylton tests the top seven wet and dry sharpeners on the market to determine the best bet in each category for your shop's needs. Tool reviews are great as they help us make purchasing decisions, but what is normally missing is a retrospective view.
But still I have learned more about the tool in the last year, as one would with any major tool purchase. It is great to have an integrated mobile base, as I move the tool around a bit to access lumber stored behind it and to clean the floor. I had reported a vibration problem in the initial review that turned out to be caused by a faulty motor. In my initial review I reported that the switch design did not seem as robust as what I would expect for a tool in this class.


In that light, I wanted to provide a short update on my Grizzly 490X Jointer, and share some of the experiences I have had with it during the year since I bought it. The only downside to the design of this base is that there is no graceful way to set the tool down. As described in part 2 of the review, the problem went away when Grizzly provided a replacement motor.
